Cotswolds Dry Gin

Item # 38052

Just when you thought that modern interpretations of classic London Dry Gin had been done to death, along comes Cotswolds. What they pull off here is one of the hardest things to do, staying true to the traditional style while elevating with there own unique contribution. Everything from the long maceration, slow and low distillation using about ten times the weight of botanicals compared to many typical London Drys, and leaving the finished gin unfiltered add up to a gin with a lot of flavor wrapped up in one of the most luxurious and silken textures we have ever tasted. The spirit itself starts with juniper, explodes with enlivening citrus that hangs on the mid-palate, transitions to pristine lavender and comes full circle back to piney juniper on the extended finish. This is simply exceptional stuff.

Staff Pick Notes

This here bottle is one of the reasons I fell in love with gin. Escaping the typical austerity of London Dry gins while sticking to form, Cotwolds maintains a traditional style but is able to achieve an intensely aromatic profile and rich texture by using 10x the average volume of botanicals in distillation and forgoing filtration. It's one of my favorites for this reason, bridging the gap between London Dry and more expressive botanical-forward contemporary gins. Because of the density of flavorful essential oils it will form a cloudy louche almost like an absinthe or arak when mixed with water. This allows even more flavors to emerge in your glass: first juniper, then musky flowers, citrus, subtle hints of lavender, lime, eucalyptus, pepper, and cardamom. It makes a great martini and its an absolute steal at this price-point.
